TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Dr John Smith Flett, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Geological Survey, S.W.
Date26 January 1903
DescriptionHarrison feels bound to impress on him the desirability of doing nothing that will in any way delay the publication of the report, since a volume of 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' has been kept open, and the Committee have stressed the importance of getting it out. The plan suggested by Mr White of transferring the block on page 26 to the blank half plate. Harrison is unaware of how much correction is still to be done, as he has not seen any proof.
